My husband and I were having our monthly DateBox date and one of the prompts I had was to ask him what his favorite thing about me was. I figured he'd say my smile or the way I'm a mom. But it was better than that. He took me in his arms and said, I like the way that you are able to make me laugh. You can make anything into something silly. You do little things throughout the day that are funny and that's what I love most about you. This statement took me by total surprise. I always felt that people around me would judge me for my random bouts of goofball-ness. But here we were, by a campfire watching the stars and enjoying chocolate fondue and the love of my life told me his favorite thing about me was the one thing that I feel makes me, me. That's what marriage is all about. Loving each other for the person they were meant to be.
The one thing that stands out most about this wedding is the absolute love that Demetrius and Lauretta share with their son, Damian. This gorgeous wedding is featured on the blog today. See the sneak peek link in bio 😘 Happy Wednesday! Yours truly, Sara
What do you do when it starts raining during an engagement session? Make it rain glitter, of course! 😍 Happy Tuesday! Yours truly, Sara
Happy Sunday, loves! Sundays are my favorite. First church then spending so much time with everyone I love most.
One thing I love more than shooting weddings is being a mother. I swear it is one of the hardest jobs. As a mom, I've seen it all and feel like I've played multiple roles in the world's longest game of dress up make believe. I'm a teacher, a nurse, a coach, a stylist, a chef, a janitor, a chauffeur and an assistant. I have seen things I don't ever want to mention again. I have cried more times than I'd like to admit. I've felt like the biggest failure but then within moments have felt like the happiest person alive. Motherhood is something that I believe is hard to explain to someone who isn't one. It's a rollercoaster of emotions, confusing and contradicting at times. Many of my brides dream of becoming mothers soon and so many of my past brides have had the opportunity to start a family of their own. The best advice I can give is this: Expect to feel as if your heart grew 4 sizes in a matter of minutes. Expect to feel the need to protect more than you thought was possible. Expect to cry tears of joy and sorrow at the same time. Prepare for questions you don't have any answers to. You'll laugh with them as they put a ridiculous show on with their stuffed animals. You'll cry with them when someone doesn't invite them to a birthday party. And every night, you'll walk into their room one last time before you go to bed--just to make sure that they are safe. Happy Friday , loves!
